Editorial Down

Get this, the lamestream media is finally wondering if people might be tuned out? What gives them that idea? They also complain that it is noisy.

Frankly, even I am getting a little tired of responding to the triggered editorials. Seen one crazed flame-out editorial, you seen them all. In this era at least. Yet I’ll describe what you need to know about this rant. I’m only amazed that they haven’t run out of adjectives to describe Trump yet. Now they are working on us voters who supported him.

But this will have to be a twofer because another flame-out column occurred on the subject days ago. Again, a Washington Post columnist. What is it with WaPo, do they believe they are leading the sedition? It is the left’s way of creating the narrative for the week.

In that one she calls for burning down the Republican Party. And she says they must get rid of every last Trump supporter or we will reassemble and do this again. She only says what all the Left thinks. Then, just like clockwork, she ran off to MSNBC to spread her venom on air to anyone that had missed her vitriolic hatred in Washington Post.

No, these people never take a break. So now another one pops up to suggest people have tuned out. Gee, what was your first clue? The people tuned out months ago. The only ones flailing about are the Leftists and socialist radicals. So MSM has been talking to themselves for months, which is kind of funny. If they really are so “exhausted,” wouldn’t you think they would have toned it down or eased up a smidgen?

Another indicator that’s a lie, like everything else they say. Actually, they should be exhausted, they tried everything they could to attack Trump and remove him from office. Now they admit they are exhausted. That really is funny, they’re exhausted.

Maybe they should have realized that before driving themselves bat shit crazy. At least they drove the entire Left crazy with them. Maybe what they mean is they exhausted all their resources, too, and Trump is still there and so are we. We aren’t going away.

They certainly have run out of anything new. We’ve seen and heard it all before anyway. They just repeat the same old stuff. And you think people are tuning out? Wonder why? It sounds even worse than it did the first time.

But people don’t believe the news anymore now. They noticed that too. The media has even less credibility as time goes on. If they all wouldn’t have fallen off the side of Alcatraz, they might have some cred. One thing for sure, they will never admit they made a mess of themselves and the press. But they have no one else to blame — not Trump, not the people, not even Republican’s. This is all their craziness.

Forewarnings of midterms

Shall we look back to see if there may have been indications of 2014 midterms landslide?

Even as far back as 2012 primaries there were stunning warnings — which might have shaken libs’ status quo even then. No, they were busy whistling past the graveyard. Townhall had a piece in May, 2012 that Pepperhawk forwarded me then. “(H/T)

Remember this is early 2012:

Little attention is being paid by the national news media to the Democrats’ presidential primaries because Obama is assured of his nomination. But the large size of the anti-Obama vote — exposing deep unrest in his party’s political base — has shaken his campaign’s high command.

The latest explosions came in Tuesday’s Kentucky and Arkansas primaries which of course he won easily. But a stunning 42 percent of Kentucky Democrats voted for “uncommitted” on their ballot.

In yellow-dog Democrat Arkansas, 42 percent voted for a little- known Tennessee lawyer, John Wolfe, over the president of the United States.

And two weeks ago in the West Virginia primary, Keith Judd, a convicted felon and now Texas prison inmate got 41 percent of the vote.

Some smarty-pants political pundits who think they know everything say some of this is about race and that these states are firmly in the GOP column anyway.

It went on to say, and quote, what the Washington Post had said:

Such strong antipathy toward Obama at this end point in his trouble-plagued presidency is “an indicator of not-insignificant pockets of unrest within his party,” writes The Washington Post’s campaign trackers Chris Cillizza and Aaron Blake.

Racial factors “may be less of a problem for Obama than the broader cultural disconnect that many of these voters feel with the Democratic Party.” And they quote Democrats who point to growing grievances that many in their party have over the political direction Obama is taking the country.

“The most significant factor is the perception/reality the Obama administration has leaned toward the ultra-left,” says former Democratic Congressman Charles Stenholm of Texas.

With all they have done since, this should have told them not to take support for granted. But the institutionalized Left ignored all that and doubled down on race-baiting, claiming opposition to Obama’s agenda was due to racism. Well, they wore out that excuse. But it didn’t reflect the rising narrative or reality.  And it didn’t fit the reality in 2014. The meme was racism, women, Hispanics, oh my. (Dems refer to as their ‘core’ constituents)

Sure they can always make that claim, as overused as it is, but sooner or later it loses its sting. Just as the ‘war on women’ narrative lost its sting in the 2014 elections. And the ideal of hope and change was lost as well — proving you can overuse a term even if it is vague. Hope and change was redefined as failure. War on women drew yawns and boos at debates. Racism is still a euphemism for disagreement with Obama, but believable? Hardly. Racism is used for an excuse for losing, as an excuse for violent protests, and as an  excuse to oppose election integrity.

So “these are states with large populations of low income, blue collar, “working class” Americans who have been hit hardest by Obama’s economic policies” were instrumental in 2014, too. It seems working class Americans overall are disenchanted with Democrats as revealed in 2014 results. But want more proof? Dems rushed to have a pow wow over the midterm results. They emerged with the message they have to do a better job relating to “middle-class” working people. Well, duh. Their policies have been a thumb in the eye to the so-called middle class.

They don’t want to do anything to actually help the middle class, they just want to talk about it, while trudging on with their elitist policies. But talk about it they will, which rings as hollow as all their other talking point messages of late. We can count on that because it was the consensus of their 2014 autopsy.

When you can’t blame yourselves, then blame the middle class for not quite understanding your message. In effect, they blamed all their special interests. But they dare not blame the teachers’ unions, who dumped record amounts of cash into their coffers.

More insight, another article from Forbes, they analyzed 2014 results:

Perhaps the biggest attrition for the Democrats has been among middle-class voters employed in the private sector, particularly small property and business owners.

Rather than the promise of “hope and change,” according to exit polls, 50% of voters said they lack confidence that their children will do better than they have, 10 points higher than in 2010. This is not surprisingly given that nearly 80% state that the recession has not ended, at least for them.

The effectiveness of the Democrats’ class warfare message has been further undermined by the nature of the recovery; while failing most Americans, the Obama era has been very kind to plutocrats of all kinds.

What’s it mean? “Middle class” will be the most used words in Dem’s vocabulary.

Curse of an ineffective prez

Mind you this comes from Washington Post but it is an opinion piece from Larry Summers. So excuse me while I question the premise of the article.

Ending presidents’ second-term curse

By Lawrence Summers August 10, 2014 | Washington Post

Disillusionment with Washington has rarely run higher. Congress is unable to act even in areas where there is widespread agreement that measures are necessary, such as immigration, infrastructure spending and business tax reform. The Obama administration, rightly or wrongly, is increasingly condemned as ineffectual. What was once a flood of extraordinarily talented people eager to go into government has shrunk to a trickle, and many crucial positions remain unfilled for months or even years. Bipartisan compromise seems inconceivable on profoundly important long-term challenges such as climate change, national security strategy and the need to strengthen entitlement programs in a fiscally responsible way.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/lawrence-summers-ending-presidents-second-term-curse/2014/08/10/84dee500-1f34-11e4-ae54-0cfe1f974f8a_story.html

Let’s say that calling Obama ineffectual is like calling Jack the Ripper ineffectual. The problem of course is the effect he has had, not his inability to have an effect. And with Summers’ great insight, aren’t you glad he is not in the Fed? There is only one way I know to guarantee the end of this curse, but he will not do that either.

I will cede a point about those semi-talented young people being wasted under his leadership. But the talent he refers to differs from what I see more as thuggery.

Sometimes it is important to follow the Left’s (progressives’) narrative because it tells you where they are at (in ideology) which is usually a different place than we live. Then, after examining that you can better respond to their faulty reasoning.

Then comes reality, Obama is stomped for the very policies he said were on the table. Or his majority in the Senate, which ran interference, reduced to minority status. So whatever Summers was idealizing about a few months before election looks more challenged now.

However, that doesn’t mean Obama’s ideology or agenda is gone. Just that now tactics will change. If one wants to then judge the effectiveness of his radical methods, then you might have the same scenario as I already explained: it is not that he is ineffective, just that America is liking his ‘effectivity’ much less.
